TWO HAPPY GRANDCHILDREN



Just a short update on the grandchildren.

I saw baby Rosa on Wednesday for the first time in 2 weeks and she has changed a lot during that time.  She took a little while before she got used to me again but quickly started smiling and laughing.  She is approaching 6 months.



She likes playing with silver kitchen foil because of the crinkly noise it makes ~ under supervision of course.   

She is doing very well but lets us know with severe determination when she wants a feed. 

For the last two days I have been looking after young Peter and he loves getting involved 'helping' with various projects like vacuum cleaning and washing up.  Don't they just love anything to do with water . . . :)

Something amused him no doubt on this snap.



He is playing with my screwdrivers again . . . :)

They moved into a three bedroom house recently and I have been helping them move over the last two weeks.  It is all done now and they are settling in well.  Peter loves his new home and much larger bedroom. They live very close to me, just up the road and round the corner.

Wishing you a very pleasant weekend.

Oh . . . . I should have described the foil item as a "survival blanket" which of course is harmless to babies . . .

  2. What beautiful Grandchildren, Eddie!
    Look at those eyes!!!
    Stunning!
    These children will continue to bring more and more love into your life....a love that no one can ever explain. You will experience it through every step and stage of their precious lives.
    They are blessed to have such a devoted and loving GrandDad, and I pray God's continued blessings on them and on you and your family.
    Maria smiles from Heaven. I know you feel each smile from her....
    Warmest hugs to you, my dear friend.

    1. Thank you Jackie ~ you are the salt of the Earth.
      Maria was so looking forward to the grandchildren ~ she knew Peter was coming but never saw him in this life and she would have loved them both dearly. But she does love them and sees them from a grandstand view in Heaven . . . :)

  6. Hi Eddie - that's great to see the two grandchildren - happy 'sausages'!! Wonderful Peter is going to be the handyman in the house. So pleased you've been able to help the family with their move, and take over nursery duty at times ... or workshop duty ... whichever is appropriate. Lucky you Peter and family are so close ... have a lovely weekend - cheers Hilary

    1. Yes, he's handy with screwdrivers and spanners
      . . . . and wants to learn it all and has good manners
      He finds it easy to take things to bits
      Which sometimes gets his Grandpa in fits . . . :)

  11. How lucky are you to be able to see them every day! I miss mine more than I thought I would when we moved here. The highlights of my year is the short visits with them. They grow up too fast. Yours are precious. Little Rosa does have the look of a very determined spirit!

  13. As I said on FB, you are such a wonderful Grandpa and help so much in their lives. I know you feel fortunate to have them, but they're so very fortunate to have you! Look at those precious faces. Too much cuteness. And finally a photo with Peter smiling! He is always so serious. :-)
